“As a former farm worker who has had several executive positions with leading companies in the Northwest, I give my full support to the Farmworker Justice Project. I worked for many years with farmers in Eastern and Western Washington who provided me with work and an opportunity to succeed in life. I am so sad that some are being unfairly attacked. Farmers are far from perfect and I am concerned that in a few cases their workers have not been treated properly. But farmers are facing an increasing shortage of qualified farm workers and the guest worker program helps fill that gap while providing very valuable work opportunities for Mexican families. I am proud to be the Labor Policy Adviser on the Farmworker Justice Project.”
